Suffolk County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Fire Island Emergency Breach Management Plan will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by NYS DEC to fill and restore breaches in the Fire Island barrier island following coastal storms. In the event of a breach, the NYS DEC shall be prepared to use up to 100,000 cubic yards of compatible sand to close it within 72 hours. Experience has demonstrated that protracted delay in closing breaches can result in significant damages and additional costs for closure. Closing breaches as rapidly as possible minimizes both costs and further damage. The sand will be obtained from upland sources, overwash deltas, existing channel dredge operations, and from offshore borrow area. The project area is Fire Island, from the Fire Island Inlet, extending east past Shinnecock Inlet to Halsey Neck Lane in Southampton, ocean side to bay side, in the Towns of Babylon, Islip, Brookhaven, and Southampton, New York.
